There are some heavy hitting horror contributors celebrating birthdays today, so we wanted to acknowledge these good folks. Happy birthdays are in order for Alexandre Aja, Charlize Theron and Tobin Bell!
Alexandre Aja is of course known as one of today’s brightest genre filmmakers, having shot memorable pictures, High Tension, The Hills Have Eyes, Piranha 3D, Horns and the emotional but excellent 9th Life of Louis Drax. Aja turns 39 years old today.
Next up is the stunning dame, Charlize Theron, who turns 42 today. Her genre credits include the terribly disconcerting film Monster, Prometheus, Mad Max: Fury Road, Children of the Corn III: Urban Harvest, The Devil’s Advocate, The Astronaut’s Wife, The Road, Dark Places, Snow White and the Huntsman and The Huntsman: Winter’s War.
And finally, we can’t forget the awesome Tobin Bell who gave life to one of today’s most recognizable villains, Jigsaw. Bell turns 75 today, and his ledger is quite beefy. You can catch Bell in all seven Saw films (in addition to the upcoming Jigsaw), Serial Killer, The X-Files, Good Neighbor, The Haunting Hour: Don’t Think About It, Dark House, Manson Family Vacation, and 12 Feet Deep.
